Electroactivity in Polymeric Materials by Lenore Rasmussen

By Lenore Rasmussen

Electroactivity in Polymeric Materials provides an in-depth view of the speculation of electroactivity and explores exactly how and why various electroactive phenomena ensue. The e-book explains the idea in the back of electroactive bending (including ion-polymer-metal-composites –IPMCs), dielectric elastomers, electroactive contraction, and electroactive contraction-expansion cycles.  The booklet additionally balances concept with functions – how electroactivity can be utilized – drawing suggestion from the artifical mechanical global and the flora and fauna round us.
